I'm writing this to offend you #4

by Gavin M Roy

You’re so typical in your angst

“Your insight is beyond your age”

You free-thinker, anti-establishment clone
So transparent in your psuedo-intellectualism
That has been brainwashed into you
by MTV and a tweed wearing philosophy professor
A foot soldier for progressive open-mindedness
Now it’s time to go do what you’re told

And hate

(in the name of tolerance)

Unfortunately all too true of a certain element among our college students especially! For all the claim to tolerance they can be the most intolerant of all! Excellent!

It is so good to be years beyond angst...
